Description: This film, referred to within the Denton Chamber of Commerce Collection as both "Dynamic Denton" and "We've Got Go," is the product of a promotional campaign organized by the Denton Chamber of Commerce. The film was made to show to industrial prospects, service clubs, and other local organizations. Production began in February 1968 and continued in locations around Denton until late April 1968. The soundtrack to the film is the 1967 promotional LP produced by the Chamber of Commerce, "Dynamic Denton in Sound and Music." The film was shown to the Chamber of Commerce in the spring of 1968 and had its local debut at the Campus Theater in August 1968.
